Gameplay[change | change source]

The game takes place in a small village. The player can also work with other animal villagers by talking and playing with them. They can also visit a store owned by Tom Nook for food or clothes. One other thing the player can do is visit a museum to donate fishes, bugs, and fossils. The player may ride a bus to go to the city, which is a new feature to the New Animal Crossing Games. There, other activities will include shopping at a fashion clothing store called GracieGrace, a theatre called the Marquee, which allows you to learn how to do new emotion faces, an office for the "Happy Room Academy" (a place that gives you tips on how to design the house that the player has in the game) , a "black market" owned by a fox named Redd, a salon called Shampoodle, and a shop owned by Katrina, a fortune teller.
